Robinson, once the craftiest am hardest-hitting boxer of his gen eration, is former middleweigh and welterweight champion. He moved up from the welter weight division when he had hi more opponents to fight and re tired as .middleweight champion lata in 1952, after clobbering everj man in the class who would craw into the ring with him. Beats Turpin For Title Robinson's retirement left the field open to any other 160-pounder of class. The 'situation wound up "with Olson, a rangy and tattooed ex-sailor out of Honolulu -and San Francisco, battling Randy Turpin of England for the title on Oct. 21 1953, in New York. Olson, a crowding, busy type o fighter who throws left jabs to the face and left hooks and right hand wallops to the body ant head, handed Turpin a good lacing in 15 rounds to win the crown. Since then, Bobo has defendec his title successfully three times Olson beat Kid Gavilan; Rocky Castellani and Pierre Langlois. He got a bit rambunctious then and tried to move up to the light- heavyweight division againsl champion Archie Moore. Moore countered him with a three-round knockout last June. It was a left hook to the jaw that polished off Olson for Moore— a fact that 'has not escaped the observant Robinson. 'Sucker For Left Hook 1 Sugar Ray said: "Olson always has been more or less a sucker for a left hook—one of my best blows. In my two win" ning fights with Bobo, I stopped him with a left hook in Philadelphia—that was the first bout. "Later in San Francisco, I lag ged him enough with the samte punch to win a 15-round decision. "Bobo is open for that type of blow. Of course, I have a good right, too, to wallop him with if I see an opening." .Olson, an untalkative person just growled: "I'm only 27 years old—eight good years on Robinson. I thought I won the last time I fought him. He's got to go at least those 15 rounds with me—and I won't hold off when I sting him as a couple of the guys he has met in his comeback campaign seemed to have done.". Sugar Ray On Floor Olson was referring to Sugar Ray's battles with Tiger Jones in Chicago last January and with . Castellani on the West Coast last summer. Jones gave Robinson a belling in the only bout Sugar Ray lost in his six-fight comeback campaign. The Tiger had Robinson 'wobbly on at least two occasions. Castellani had Sugar Ray on the PATTERSON FLOORS SLADE—Referee Dynamite Jackson waves Floyd Patterson to a corner after the Brooklyn heavyweight title contender floored Jimmy Slade of New York in the fifth round of their scheduled. ten-rounder last night at Los Angeles. Slade got up at nine, backed away and the bell saved him further trouble. (AP Photofax) Patterson Gets TKO Victory When Slade Refuses To Fight LOS ANGELES (ff)—Young Floyd Patterson may be next in line at a shot at heavyweight champion .Rocky Marciano but whether he's ready for such a dangerou assignment is debatable today. . • Last night the 20-year-old om Brooklyn erased Jimmy Slade le No. 5 heavyweight contender 'om the picture via a tech ical knockout in the seventh of a cheduled 10 rounder^aLtheJDlymp c Auditorium. Patterson ripped open Slade's ght eyelid in the third and he hased the 29-year-old New York r all over the ring for the better art oE seven rounds. But Patter on couldn't quite catch Jimmy th' poiler. It- was left to the referee 'ynamite Jackson, to do the job Jackson stepped in and stoppec ie affair after 2:05 of the sev nth and explained later: "Slade just wouldn't fight. I kep el ling him to get in there and 'ok good even if he was losing bu guess he felt that he was too utclassed." Patterson won every round ; lowed a great deal of punching nd boxing ability despite the con- ant retreating by Slade and was ever seriously concerned with the utcome. The one time he caught up with ade was in the fifth.. He chasec m into a neutral corner, nailec m with a solid right to.the jaw nd added another as Jimmy wenl ownjor nine. ""Bleeding badly from the gashec e, Slade was absorbing more unches through the sixth and sev- nth and then Jackson stopped the atch. There was a flurry of action in e Slade corner between the sixth nd seventh. Manager Al Joyner uffed Jimmy soundly with the floor for an eight-count in the xth round of their fight—but fail- I to follow up. Olson, on last quoted odds in licago, was a one to two favorite retain his title. The champion will receive 35 cent of the gate which is ex- ected to gross $150,000 on a 12,000 tendance. Olson will receive 35 per cent the net and Robinson 25 per ;nt. The bout is being nationally levised at 10 p. m., EST, by the ational Broadcasting Company, th the Chicago area blacked out. Television rights will add 575,000 the fighters' cut-in purse, with th sharing on the same percen- ge as they will in the gale. Robinson's record glitters with ass. He has won 136 of 143 pro. fessional fights—88 by knockouts. Olson has fought 72 fights and won 65—30 on knockouts. COLUGE lASKtTSAU POWER INDEX twiai ore pott pcrformonee average*. !»- .

State's Wolf- pack was running a close second, with 83.5. after having disposed ol r lorida State by 25 and Penn State jy a whopping 36.

The Associated Press Four of the college foolba teams that will play in majo bowl games, Jan. 2, were chose "automatically" when they wo conference championships. Anotl er, a second place team, wa designated when the litle-winne was a team ineligible to retur 3 second time. These conference-bowl tie-up lave been a controversial subjec in football ever since the Big Te and Pacific Coast Conference signed their first Rose Bowl agree menl. They're no less controver sial this year, the annual Asso dated Press post-season surve indicated. Opposing Margin Slight The 149 sports writers an sroadcasters participating in th survey expressed some decide opinions but very little agreemen on the subject. The' count of ba ots showed a 67-56 margin. in op position to the tie-ups and 22 non committal replies. But about th only point on which all hand seemed to agree was that th ames themselves would be bette and more interesting if the cham pions were allowed to go to a bow every year. The Big 10 and PCC have a rul hat the same school can't play n the post - season game tw traight years. The Big Seven has a similar regulation in connection vith the Orange Bowl, in which t opposes the Atlantic Coast Con crence. The Southwest Conference as a tie-up to send its champion 0 the Cotton Bowl without sucl estrictions. As a result, Michigan State in tead of champion Ohio Stale wil ilay in the Rose Bowl next Jan lary and last winter Nebraska, veak second in the Big Seven', was laughtered by Duke in the Or nge Bowl, A substantial number 1 those who voted against the ;e-ups based their objections on riese "no repeat" rules and a gooc many who favored them also en ered the sama. objection. Eliminate 'Shopping' The principal arguments in 'fa or of the tie-ups were that they liminate "shopping around," com etitive bidding for the top teams nd a wild scramble at the enc f the season. Opponents of the agreements rgued just as vehemently tha lie bowls should be open to every ne and only the top teams shoulc ompete. Tie-ups, they say, don't ive the strong "independent 1 earns a chance to play in the iggest bowl games and often senc econd-rate conference representa- .ves in their place. At'least a dozen of the experts irongly advanced the "best team nly" argument and .an equal num- er maintained that the reduction f pressure, both on colleges anc ponsors, outweighed any, disad- antages the tie-ups may have Vbout one fourth of those casting allots proposed elimination of the no repeat" restrictions.'
